Sitting atop the former site of a 49-acre cemetery, Anza Vista is a small, foggy residential area with easy access to shopping, hospitals, and schools. On its eastern side, Anza Vista borders the Divisadero corridor, which gives residents access to a variety of bars, cafes, and restaurants. Tall buildings along Anza Vista's major thoroughfare, Geary Boulevard, make exciting views of the San Francisco skyline hard to find.

This community has numerous amenities available for residents to enjoy.


Homes in this area come in a wide range of prices, styles, and sizes.

Where to Live

A steep hill reaches its zenith along the western border of the neighborhood on Masonic Avenue. Multi-family homes and apartments close to Masonic and Geary give residents access to grocery stores and shopping centers, though the availability of parking means drivers have easy access as well. The eastern side of the neighborhood's proximity to Divisadero allows residents more walkability; the hills are slightly milder, with bars, restaurants, and shopping close by. Residents on the eastern side also enjoy their proximity to the medical facilities that dominate the real estate on Geary near Divisadero.

Where to Eat

While few restaurants exist within the center of Anza Vista's small area, the perimeter contains a variety of options. On the western edge of the neighborhood, those hungry for diner food or hamburgers can eat at old-school eateries. Along the eastern edge of Anza Vista, the Divisadero corridor is home to many restaurants and cafes, though the highest concentrations of these restaurants lie south of the neighborhood's borders.

What You'll See

You can expect to see the fog hiding the tops of duplexes in the morning. Cars speeding down Geary Boulevard and navigating parking lots is a common sight. You'll also see children walking to school or eating a snack with their parents. Bustling doctors and nurses are walking to work, and taxis dropping off patients at the hospital. Views of identically designed houses butted up against one another is also a common thing to see in Anza Vista.

Friday Night Fun

Walk to Fulton Street to eat Eastern European food and drink German beer or swing by Divisadero Street for a casual restaurant or cafe. The streets are quiet except for car traffic on Geary; take a meditative stroll through the center of the neighborhood and take in the sights.

The Perfect Sunday

Head to Masonic and eat a diner breakfast or savor a fancy brunch. Walk west to the University of San Francisco and admire the beautiful architecture of St. Ignatius Church and the rest of the campus. Take the 43-Masonic bus south to the Panhandle and watch locals play basketball in the park while lounging on the grass.
